According to McMinn County Sheriff Joe Guy, a female from Georgia was reported unconscious, but regained consciousness when EMS arrived. The female refused any more medical attention. 

"Things like this will continue until Mr Womac (Blue Cove Hideaway owner)  takes responsibility and operates Blue Cove in a safer manner. Until then I continue to warn people to stay away from this place,"  said Sheriff Guy.
